It' important to refresh yourself, in order to enjoy all the benefits of the sauna!
The sauna comprises 2 phases:
- Warming and sweating in the sauna
- Refreshing after the sauna
The lenght of the 2nd phase must be equal or greater than the 1st. Our advice is to exit the sauna, wait a couple of minutes to allow your airway to cool and then, take a cold shower starting from the bottom up. After that, you can relax as you please for as long as you wish.
The braver ones can use the cold well or the Scottish shower. The well recreates the typical immersion in a frozen lake or in a river. The Scottish shower is a bucketful of cold water from above. There is also a small waterfall of ice to be used for gentle massages on the body.
THE REINTEGRATION OF THE LIQUIDS
A reduction in weight (500 - 1500 gr. ca.) is normal after the saunas. This happens because you've lost a lot of liquids and mineral salts. It's important to reintegrate them. Besides water and teas, we advise you to drink beverages that are rich in vitamins such as orange juices or centrifuges. By adding a little bit of olive oil, that's rich in vitamins A,D,E,K, you will facilitate the absorption of vitamins of other food. You should avoid alcoholic beverages, while beer is indicated for its diuretic properties.
